Through four games, NYCFC has taken five points out of a possible twelve, and just two of nine at home.
But if you're a fan of the Bronx Blues, two facts have you resting pretty easy ahead of tonight's Yankee Stadium clash against Chicago:
- The Blues have already defeated the Fire this year.
- The Red Bulls are second-bottom in the East, sporting a stunning -7 goal differential.
BTW, GUESS WHO THE REFEREE IS
It's this guy, woooooo!

New York City:
OUT: Connor Brandt (core muscle repair), Frank Lampard (gastrocnemius inflammation)

FLY, MY PRETTIES, FLY
New York City 3, Chicago Fire 1.
The time off serves Vieira's boys well. Villa 8', Mendoza 14', Igboaninike 45', Mullins 88'. NYCFC jumps five points clear of the Red Bulls.
